Mobile Film Festival 2020 - Women's Empowerment

Posted September 4, 2020 from France

Dear all,

My name is Sarah, and I’m managing the Mobile Film Festival, an international film festival which can be resumed with those three words: 1 Mobile 1 Minute 1 Film ! 

I’m reaching out to you today, because this year’s theme for our 16th edition is WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT and I’m sure you all have stories to share about this topic, as empowered women all around the world. 

The only rules are that you must capture it with a mobile, and that it can not last more than 1 minute. Your film could be a narrative fiction, or also a documentary.  The only thing that matters is that you speak with your heart and your creativity.

We chose Women’s Empowerment as a theme because we want to address feminist issues in a positive, constructive, and activist way. The questions could be specific to your country, your culture, your religion; they could concern the family, professional or intimate universe; they could denounce unacceptable situations that are still too present, but they could also propose concrete actions to improve the situation; they could be global or local and above all, they could highlight the feminist ghts everywhere in the world in the search for real equality.

 You can send your film until the 20th of october on www.mobilefilmfestival.com to share your story with us. 

We will reward 7 awards among them, 2 grants of 23 000 $ each to make a film. 

For inspiration, watch examples from previous editions here: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmmHH91d-hbv0lCzXuKwO2pWugw9Qw0wB 

I know how much World Pulse is full of creative women and amazing stories, I hope you will join us to give life to your testimonies !

Hello Kristine, looking forward to watching it :)

Hello, Sarah,

Welcome to World Pulse! I'm happy that a new voice from France has joined this growing sisterhood, and with an awesome first post at that!

Thanks for sharing this opportunity with us. It's a lovely idea. I think the shorter a video is, the more challenging and creative it will be. Can't wait for more updates from you! Please write more stories.

Hi Sarah,
Film is so powerful and what a great offer this is, inviting World Pulse women to take part. I love that you name this as the feminist action it is. I can imagine how powerful it will be to see the faces and hear the words of World Pulse sisters for this project. A big welcome to World Pulse!
